May was an amazing month...
I have to admit it
rushed by in a bit of a blur..
I was working to finish my collection..
get packed and finish deadlines..
so I was very focused on
but looking back on the month,
I see that I grew immensely
as I was putting the finishing touches on
the show and my work..
it has changed considerably
in the last four years..
the town itself is quite different..
but the friends that I have made
that are so close as to be family...
are still the same..
so my pages are layered..
and I have painted them
over and over..
worked almost as laboriously
as I did on my Notebook pieces..
Who says you can't go back home?
my pages reveal the blue sky breaking through..
and the world flowering despite
trauma and tragedy..
both personally and universally..
Ingredients: Collage, decollage, paper ephemera, acrylic paint, gesso, pencil,
so dear readers..
it is summer,
and I will be taking a break
to visit with family..
When I return I will film a new YouTube segment
on My Flower Collages,
and I will hopefully ..
have some amazing
for you to see..
thank you all for your kind support..
your uplifting comments..
I am so very grateful..
